    blistein b8 = intrax essential

    Have the same set up B8/intrax on my M5 after lots of good reviews on M5 boards and is slightly firmer than OEM with better road handling

    What did you do to your E39 today ?

    Finally picked up a set of original 19" BBS wheels today that belonged to a previous member here few years ago and recently refurbed with Nu Luk including new bolts.
  5. Dont talk to me! First month I picked up M5 and ordered complete new titanium interior trim from main dealer to replace old/scratched ones.....madness!
  6. Nearly all M5's suffer from blistering on the shadow line trim How much were the parts approx from main dealer? Looking to do mine next month

    M5 (E39) Brakes

    I have mine fitted about a year now on the M5 and got brackets originally from Fritz. I am member in Ireland on BMW driver and as far as I know there is only about 3 M5's with the same set up.

    E39 Finned Diffuser

    Just fitted rear carbon diffuser, roof spoiler and lip spoiler to my M5 from Schiedmann Parts are good quality finish but the rear diffuser needs a little filling on the screw tabs in order to fit flush. The tabs will click in across the centre alright.

    Whats my car worth - selling options

    Currently in same situation with full S62 engine rebuild, Bilstein B8 dampers, Intrax springs, FMU back boxes, Supersprint X pipe, E92 BMW front Performence brake kit with carriers from Fritz and every bushing/control arms etc replaced with Febi/Lemforder and 130k miles Upside I have a buyer who contacted me directly from project diary online that I maintained over 3 years so fingers crossed it works out.
  10. What is the difference in design between rogue and Supersprint x pipe? Currently running FMU boxes with Supersprint x pipe on my M and looking to go down headers road next. Love the FMU's which are more American V8 rumble but I do have slight drone at 2k. While bearable for me daily, it would be nice to bring it down

    Fitted new exhausts last weekend

    After reading Performence BMW few months back with the feature on Fluid Motor Union's new E39 M5 exhausts, emailed Michael and ordered a set to Ireland. Picked up Supersprint X Pipe from CA and got everything fitted with Souhans in Meath. Quick video after fitting

    Fitted new exhausts last weekend

    I was in Dublin over the weekend and called to my mate Martin who has E39 M5 with Supersprint X pipe like mine but has Supersprint back boxes instead. My M5 is on the left and Martins on the right Here is a quick comparison video Which sounds better?

    E39 M5 mpg

    I have never seen high 20's in the M5 and best long haul journeys in 6th is 24 mpg max and around town 14-16mpg. I always say to people who ask what MPG M5 does.....go buy a 530d!

    Fitted new exhausts last weekend

    No offence at all sholtby! Prob cheaper with muffler delete alright but all down to personal choice. Either way it makes V8 S62 sound alot better!

    Cruise Control Not Operating

    Have the same problem funny enough Cruise was working until my clutch started slipping. Had the clutch done and also a remap done at the same time. Lights up on the dash but cannot set the speed Speedo is working fine and ran a diagnostic with my indy and nothing showed up Would the remap have effected it? Stupid question?

    Wiring M5 mirrors advice

    I have a 530d which does not have electric memory seats option and wanna wire in M5 replica auto fold mirrors (from Kudos) What are my options for wiring them to work? Any online guides to do it?

    Moving up to M5

    The joys of VRT tax here which is illegal under EU law!! Seesure that will be a nice road trip for you!!
  22. Philip Cork

    Moving up to M5

    Don't mind the tax as the 530d I have is €1240 a year while M5 will be €1490 I think It's the VRT import tax thats the killer and after July the % rates are increasing Give you an example.. A 2000 M5 and VRT is approx €7300 while a 2001 is €8500 and a 2002 is €10,500!!!

    Moving up to M5

    Thanks guys for advice so far Will be travelling from Cork City in Ireland, fly over and ferry back with hopefully M5! Thought the price was a little on the high side with the mods and miles but have not ruled it out yet and will be on the list to view. Need to get time booked off work in order to travel for a few days

    Wiring M5 mirrors advice

    Got my mirrors sprayed and being fitted today I still have a problem regarding autofold and wondering if the M5 drivers switch control unit and passenger unit will work in my car considering I dont have memory seat options etc I don't want to order the parts and then discover they wont work!! In the meantime I have ran wires up the pillars to the centre roof console alongside the sunroof switch and terminated them there and have the rest ready to go through the door loom. How can I get the wiring through the door loom as it is a block connector without having to go outside the rubber grommet to get into the door panel etc Any advice?
